I was an out of state student as well. 

well, what do you want to major in? If you plan to major in Bus, Eng, pre law/med, health sciences, you will have a hard time getting in. However, if you plan on doing Agri, English, Philo and "so forth" you wont have a problem. 

In high school I was not super involved:

joined a bunch of clubs(never involved) and did volunteering here and there just to get my required hrs

played varsity sports 3 years

2.6 gpa 1360/1600 sat(older one)

Applied to 8 schools and go into them(including osu), but chose U of I Urbana Champ for their Engineering prog because that's what my parents wanted me to do. Failed out! 

Went into Comm College, did well and applied to OSU and a bunch of other schools and OSU was the only one who gave me a second chance due to my crap grades at U of I. 

Lets back up a bit. A recruiter had come to my college and i sat and heard everything she wanted to say. After she was done almost all the students just left, so I went up and told her my case and she took my name, number and email address. A week later a get a call from the dean of admissions(sadly, she is no longer there) and she was super nice. 5 days later I get my thick packet :) 

 All you have to do is stand out from the rest. Call/email admissions, talk to them. Talk to recruiters when they come to your high school or college. 

Ohio State gave me a second chance. Got 3 degrees(Finance, Bio and Japanese), currently a 3rd year co pilot of SW Airlines. So, I am living my dream and I have OSU to thank for that. So, if you see a guy in uniform walking down the terminal with an OSU and  a block O sticker on my bag, say hi.

All the best!

Sorry for the long response and being over dramatic, but I am a little too passionate about anything OSU related. 

What can i say, I bleed scarlet and grey, all day errryday :) O-H..

Denard R. Is going to have a whale of a time if our second half defense shows up. And I for one, def want that win!

Oh.My.God. It's clear that both sides on the ball step up and play their best when miller or someone competent plays. Clearly Joe ain't it!! Why does Luke keep playing him. It's beyond frustrating to watch him step on the field. Time to give some other qb a shot. I will gladly volunteer my services. I suck, but I know I can throw 5-10 and possibly, 13.25 yards with some accuracy. And I'm sure most of you guys are better than me.
